DEDICATION 




DEDICATION 

To 
William Henry Jones 

Whose deep understanding of 
beautiful music, imparted freely, 
has broadened our pleasures; 
whose exquisite twilight services 
are engraved upon our hearts; and 
ivhose kind, constant interest has 
completely captured our affec- 
tions—We, the Class of 1939, 
gratefully dedicate this annual.

The College 



Classes 



Activities 



Features 



The hands of Bishop Penick, Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees, symbolize the spiritual and ad- 
ministrative phases of the school. 

The hands of a student grasp her book as her mind 
assimilates its contents. 

Active, lithe, quick, the hands here are playing in 
a recital, which is but one of many and various 
activities of the school. 

Graceful, tailored, relaxed yet attentive, these 
hands represent the various phases of social life, 
which the school looks upon as necessary balance. 



Advertisements Here the hands of Miss Sutton, sure and experi- 
enced, sell stamps to the students, as merchants 
of the town sell them other articles. 



PKOLOGUE 



As the hands of an individual reveal his peculiarities, his interests, and his 
abilities; so we have tried to portray in this book the character, the activities, 
and the accomplishments of St. Mary's and her students.

piest. Poker, dice, and pool days, only we never had time for the 
poker, dice and pool. Close that window just a little more, Suzie. 
There's a draft on my toes. Now, that's fine. You know, children 
in spite cf all your auto-gyros and television radios, I can't think you 
have so much fun at St. Mary's as we used to have years ago. Thinking 
about all the things we did, official and unofficial, I do wonder how we 
graduated at all, and, looking at it down the corridor of years, I believe 
our diplomas were through the kindness of the three Fates, Mrs. 
Cruikshank, Miss Tucker, and Miss Davis. How clearly I remember 
our simple fun. Now all this "taking our place in the world of men" 
wasn't a patch to taking our place in the line of girls at Miss Sasser's 
window the September of 1937. And when one sophisticated student lit 
a cigarette in the teachers' sitting room . . . ! Incidentally, that's 
the last cigarette we saw 'till Christmas. 

The first week-end at school, my roommate and I double-dated with 
two Seniors who unbent for the space of two hours and fifteen minutes 
to take us to the Old-Girl, New-Girl Party. I think they stole those two 
drooping daisies they presented us, because I remember noticing a bare 
space in the vase of flowers on the parlor table. 

Whenever anyone mentions those first few weeks, I have a mental 
picture of everyone new running around declaring she hadn't a minute 
and the Seniors just looking wise and saying nothing. We gave a 
grand Hallowe'en party, we thought — food and costumes and games and 
ghosts and prizes. Grendel and his mother won a prize. That's the 
first time I ever heard the name Grendel, but not the last. 

Fall flew fast — fun, football games, flunking. (Alliterative hangover 
from Modern Composition and Rhetoric, my dears.) You see, when I 
went to school we really learned things but today. . . . (But why go into 
that.) Christmas pageant and party, time to go and all the little 
girls waiting with bags and boxes like one big Italian family. Miss 
Davis was the mother. 

Between Christmas and spring vacation we had two splendid plays 
with the brightest stars, of course, from our class. Two other bright spots 
were the Valentine supper and the gym demonstration. We had exams, 
too, but I don't believe they were very bright. Then we began to hear 
about the Senior's essays. Freely did we offer our opinions on all 
topics and all phases of English literature. Oh, children, it was a 
great day in my life wdien a great, grown Senior asked me to explain 
"Sordello."

Easter everyone stayed at school and blossomed on tlie campus with 
flowers from "the cutest one" (or our fathers, the story in either case 
being the same). After Spring had established herself for good, 
things happened faster than I can tell it — the Junior-Senior, May Day 
and on to Commencement. Oh children, we cried with the Seniors 
themselves in wailing and mourning when the handkerchief was 
dropped to end the school year. Ah me. Tempus fugit. But I forgot 
to tell \ou that it was in St. Mary's parlor that I first met your 
grandfather! 

And now we turn to the year 1938-39, and see the entrance of a new 
senior class. Yes, that was us again, but a decidedly different us. You 
see, we were worldly wise! I never did think the underclassmen looked 
up to us quite as much as they should have. That didn't make us 
dislike them, though. Heavens, no; we were condescending and com- 
forting In all. Come to think of it, I believe we were just about the 
nicest senior class I ever saw ! 

But, let me get on. Where was I? Oh, yes. in a perfect whirl of 
parties. Children. I wish you could have been at that Old-Girl, New- 
Girl Party, and heard Annie Hyman Bunn and Cordelia Jones sing. I 
tried for days to sing like them, but all I achieved was a sore throat. 
I couldn't even cheer Hallie and Jane Emerson for winning the prize 
at the Hallowe'en Party, They were a book worm — and I'm not mixed 
up or crazy. Our next step was to give the Senior Dance. (I had your 
grandfather worried there for a while; I acted as if I weren't going to 
ask him. ) That was the year hoop-skirts came back in style, and you 
should have seen all of us humping around in the gym. We had 
decorated it up like a "Winter Wonderland" with lots of "Oscar Icicles" 
and "Jack Frosts." It was all blue and white, which made my pink 
dress look lovely. At least, that's what your grandfather said. Oh. 
but by this time it was almost Christmas. Can't you see Granny singing 
Christmas Carols around St. Mary's campus and neighborhood at 4 
o'clock in the morning? And remind me to show you the snapshot I 
took of our Christmas Pageant. It was the prettiest Nativity program 
I've ever seen or heard, thanks to Miss Davis. 

After Christmas holidays, the days ran like "Shorty" Perry. 
"Patience," Easter, "Twelfth Night," and May Day were all well done, 
and pretty. But commencement. It was so sad! Yes, children. Granny 
really did cry. Ah me! 1 just hope your school days will mean as 
much to you as mine did to me. But, look, Suzie's gone to sleep. The 
rest of you hurry and get to bed. and I'll take her up. And don't tell 
your Mother I kept you up so late, or she'll say I'm getting old and 
feeble-minded. Now scat!

In 1937 the Legislative Body, consisting of seven faculty members and fifteen 
students, was formed as an outgrowth of our Student Government. Its purpose is 
to enable the Student Body to have a greater part in school government, and this 
group has the authority to sift and pass upon petitions submitted by the students 
concerning any school regulations. Upon approval by the President these petitions 
are then submitted to the student body for vote and any accepted rules go into effect 
the following year.

of rules. Its decisions are submitted to the Faculty Executive Committee, upon whose 
approval they become final.

This year the Glee Club, under the supervision of Mr. W. H. Jones, produced 
the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. Patience. Much credit and praise should be given 
for their splendid work, both in the original performance and in the radio broad- 
cast over station WPTF two weeks later. A well-trained cast, beautiful costumes, a 
beautiful interpretation of the comedy, and lovely music all added to its great success.

The choir members are selected by Mr. \\ . H. Jones after voice trials. These girls 
furnish a lovely musical background at the chapel services, thereby encouraging 
the congregation to sing, and they take an outstanding part in the Senior Christmas 
pageant. 




The Altar Guild 

For many years the St. Mary's altar guild has been an active organization. Its 
purpose is to train girls to care for the altar and its vestments faithfully and d;- 
voutly. In doing this, the students aid the chaplain and prepare themselves, through 
a clear understanding of the forms and ceremonies of our church, to serve in our 
chapel here or in anv Episcopal church to which thin belong.

The Sigma Lambda (Sidney Lanier) and Epsilon Alpha Pi (Edgar Allen Poe) 
Literary Societies devote their energies to creative writing in the forms of poetry, 
essays, and short stories. Each member's contribution is anonymous at the time it 
is read so that criticism may be free and impersonal. Periodically, judges award 
points to the societies' contributions according to their merit. Then at the end of 
the year, the society given the greatest number of points is awarded the cup. Member- 
ship, by election, is based on aptitude in writing and is therefore a coveted honor.

Political Science Club 



The Political Science Club was organized in 1935 by Mr. William C. Guess to enable Social 
Science students at St. Mary's to understand and know more about current events, national and 
international politics. Occasionally there is a guest speaker at the meetings, but more often 
there is a presentation and discussion of present political problems by Mr. Guess. This club is 
primarily for students taking courses in the Social Sciences, but is open to all students interested 
in the important happenings of the world today.

Senior Dance 

The seniors at St. Mary's realized one of their dreams on the night of December tenth when they 
gathered with their escorts in the gymnasium which had been transformed into a Winter Wonder- 
land for the dance. Evening wraps were placed in Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus igloo, and all around 
the walls were attractive skiers, ice skaters. Jack Frosts and Oscar Icicles. Balloon snow-balls, 
white confetti snow-flakes, and wonderful music by the V.M.I. Commanders were supplemented by 
delicious punch at intermission. A memorable night for the Seniors of 1939. 




The Junior-Senior Dane 



c 

This spring the Juniors entertained the Seniors amid umbrellas, daffodils, and rain drops. An 
atmosphere of green and white, topped by an enormous rainbow, carried out the theme of '"April 
Showers." The largest Junior and Senior classes in the history of St. Mary's filled the gymnasium 
and danced to music furnished by the V.M.I. Commanders, again. 

Between this dance and the Senior one in December, the Order of the Circle gave a girl-break 
dance which was informal and lots of Inn.

'Render Unto Caesar" . . . 

Few students when they read THE STAGE COACH and look with 
interest through its pages realize the long hours of continued 
effort and capability required of the staff in the preparation 
of copy, calls on the merchants, and the many other endless 
duties required of on efficient staff member So — give it a 
thought and render a tribute to those staff members of your 
publication who have served faithfully their school and their 
fellow students in these extra curricula activities.
